Whilst looking for a picture of a plane crashed by Gary Numanoid (for another thread, of course) I stumbled across this site
http://www.classicalbums.co.uk/theysuck.htm

Now we all must have listened to plenty of albums in our time - some may have been a life-changing experience - but we must have a few lying around (waiting in the charity shop pile) that we got on recommendation, had rave reviews, or because we're fans and can't stop buying, but which turned out to be a pup, and one that's left a mighty big stinking poo on you turntable/CD tray, and has left a nasty taste in your mouth (er,....).

I was going to start off with Maladjusted by Morrissey but I know there are some who rate it as his best work. :shock:

But perhaps there are horrors we shouldn't go back to.....

Good thread Tony T.

Maladjusted had its moments (mainly the singles) but Southpaw Grammar by Moz was truly truly dire.

Cut the Crap by the Clash was as bad as the title.

Every Ash album bar Free All Angels but especially Meltdown as it followed it.

The second Stone Roses album.

Billy Bragg's William Bloke (well there's a couple of goodies on there but it was sooooo much worse than its superb predecessors)

Go For It by SLF (loved the 1st 2 albums to death)

Pet Sounds - The Beach Boys. I've listened to this but just can't get into it at all.

Cut The Crap does have 1 great tune on it which is always missed off Clash compilations.

A few more. I'm a big fan of Ed Ball and own just about all of his records from Television Personalities, Teenage Filmstars, The Times, O Level and his solo stuff. But 2 of his albums were piss poor -

Edward Ball's - "L'Orange Mechanik".

Teenage Filmstars - "Buy Our Record, Support Our Sickness" - The only record of Ed Ball's which I had to sell as it was that bad. It might of sounded ok if the songs hadn't been recorded backwards.

I never said 'best' work - but it is better than You Are The Quarry :wink:

Another one which is by far the worst CD in my collection.

Not the original album or the 80's Virgin reissue or even the American issue "The Who Sing My Generation". But the shitty stereo "remix" that was put out the other year.

Not forgetting (some things should not be forgotten as a warning to others) the classically bad 'Transformed Man' by ol' Bill Shatner (shat by name,...). Alas, the awful thesp didn't forget and has recently followed this up with another album (it's name, blissfully, escapes me) which received critical disbelief...

I bought Cut The Crap on the belief that the Clash could never put out a rubbish album and on the basis that 'This Is England' is a great track, with a classic line (well I quote it) ,"I got my motorcycle jacket/But I'm walking all the time". I assumed this single never appeared on compilations (well not until recently) because it was never considered the real Clash...

I think the only reason it hasn't appeared on any comp is that it will stop people from having to buy Cut The Crap.

You got me checking now...It did appear on 'The Essential Clash' but I think it is the only occasion. Now I can get rid of my copy of Cut the Crap... :)

Mars Volta - De-Loused In The Comatorium - Emerson Lake & Palmer for this generation. Totally unlistenable, boring dross.

The Libertines - Up The Bracket - Another band that people rave about and I just don't get.

Radiohead - Kid A - Yorke decides to follow up a masterpiece like OK Computer with this shit. One good song on it("How To Disappear Completely") and the rest you can shove up your ass.

Manic Street Preachers - 'Know Your Enemy' naming a single after a cranberry juice company should have been enough of a warning.

Stereophonics - Just Enough Education To Perform, a present that I had to pretend to like as it was infront of the family.

The Streets - A Grand Don't Come For Free, I would prefer to do back to back jungle challenges than listen to this, it makes every orifice in my body want to bleed. Don't get the hype at all.

Pulp - This Hardcore
Oasis - 3rd album and beyond.
Wedding Present - everything post-Bizarro (none of it is rubbish but the standards before were soooo high)

I'm glad you added the disclaimer about the Weddoes, otherwise I might have had to disagree rather strongly! I have to disagree about 'This Is Hardcore' though - I think it's a brilliant album and even competes to be my favourite Pulp record on occasion.
